Roma Conflict:
    An Exploration
    of Human Rights 


 

When: February 10, 2014, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. 
Where: Lurias, Hassenfeld Conference Center (L13 on map)
Brandeis University 

The Roma population for the past several centuries has endured unapologetic racism and discrimination. As a result of being a marginalized but large minority in Europe, they have had difficulty realizing and advocating for their human rights.

Join Margareta Matache, Ph.D., Harvard FXB Center; Ana Bracic, post doctoral fellow at Stanford University; Camilla Ida, Ph.D. student at University of Copenhagen and research fellow from Harvard; Damiana Andonova ’15 from Brandeis University; and Kate Ryan, director of the documentary “Welcome Nowhere” for a panel discussion on the current status and struggles of Roma throughout the world.

Stay after the panel for the screening of “Welcome Nowhere,” a telling documentary about the Roma in Bulgaria.

Cosponsored by the Health, Science, Society, and Policy Program, the Peace, Conflict and Coexistence Program, and the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism.
